The CBLDF Presents Liberty Annual 2014

The CBLDF Presents Liberty Annual 2014

The Liberty Annual is a collection of stories about the importance of protecting our First Amendment rights, by a collection of different writers and artists throughout the comic book industry.

It is a book with a message, but the message is of value to every ideology and fandom. It is a core tenant of artistic expression, and these stories tell that story in such an insightful and subtle (sometimes) way that it is certain to make you think about why you do read comics and why you should read comics.
